And it's here!
After the run, I was starving and excited to get home and make a nice supper (yes I call it supper, not dinner. In my book, "dinner" means "supper where you have to dress up").
Let me preface supper real quick. My refigerator may not be stocked at all times (hardly ever), but if nothing else, I am guaranteed to have spaghetti sauce in that fridge. And if it's not in the fridge, there is a spare jar in the cabinet. Guaranteed. period. exclamation point. Spaghetti is one of my favorites, because it's so EASY, hence why I stock up every time I go to Aldis.
Well, don't you just hate when you start cooking part of the meal, run to get that special ingredient and then realize it is nowhere to be found? Well, that happened to me tonight. No spaghetti sauce. Rats! And the noodles were half done. What to do, what to do? I could make butter noodles...nahhh...so I dug around. Thank goodness for 6-month-old past purchases! In my pantry I found diced tomatoes...hmmm. I also had chopped onions left over from pizza night....and...the chef hat goes on. I started cooking the tomatoes, added the onion, some garlic, italian seasoning, hot sauce and basil...
I'm going to toot my own horn a little bit, since you can't taste this for yourself - man it was GOOD!
Cooking off the cuff and impressing myself once again.
"Beware of those who stand aloof
And greet each venture with reproof
The world would stop if things were run
By men who say, "It can't be done."
now...on to this mini marathon in 5 days.... :(
